They've robbed me of a valuable second! Time amended to 17:49.
Boom. Very busy at the start; boxed in for at least 1k before the field spread out a bit. This probably helped me not go too fast. Pushed really hard up the hill on the 2nd and third laps as I know that's where I usually lose time. 2nd i was able to accelerate and felt ok, but by the third my legs were entirely lactate and I couldn't maintain the pace by the top.the last 2k were pretty grim but I knew it was going to be a pretty good time so held on.
Resting for Aztec, because it looks like good conditions tomorrow and I seem to be in quite good form, so may as well give it a shot...
Orienteering - Forest race (Castlemorton Common) 1:00:39  11.98 km (5:04 / km) +126m 4:49 / km
shoes: X-Talon 190 (blue)
EDIT: Satisfyingly dominant; http://obasen.orientering.se/winsplits/online/en/d...
(worst split 5th, two 4ths and all the rest in the top 3)
and the massive numer of ranking points should take me back into the top 100 :)
1st when I left...
Very nervous going into this because open with thickets is generally terrain where I make horrendous mistakes. So deliberately planned on taking safe options and slowing right down when necessary. And it worked!
Long way around the green on 6-7 was twice as far as the straight line route and thought I might have lost time here, but split time very similar to Phil's. Then very safe on 9 choosing the closest AP i possibly could seemed to pay off as well. 21-22 took the more risky route through the marsh which I think was a mistake, but not much time lost here either.
Not quite a perfect run, but near-perfect; very pleased. Feeling the 16k yesterday for the first half, but feeling pretty good by the end.
